Distinctly tan and brown Noctua fans get three new additions to the family: 92, 80 and 40mm A-series fans. Noctua’s A-series fans are their flagship series designed for heatsink use (high static pressure) and features their Advanced Acoustic Optimization (AAO) technology. According to Noctua CEO Roland Messig, it took three years to develop this design so that it meets their efficiency and silence standards. “We’re very happy with how the NF-A8 and NF-A9 turned out in the end, they really push the limits in their fields.” he adds.
Noctua’s NF-A4x10 in particular is a much requested addition, perfect for network or storage solutions for its 5V operating voltage, bringing lower noise and Noctua build quality to these environments.
